El Puente Project

In December 2019 we funded the building of a footbridge in Planadas, Colombia. It’s a place we buy a lot of coffee from so we thought it right to give something back. This bridge has enabled children to cross a river safely to get to school. They had previously been crossing on tree trunks (you can actually see this in the photo just below the new bridge).

The ASOPEP Co-op is recognised for its quality and consistency in cup profiles and this bridge inspired the creation of our El Puente single-origin coffee.
